Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a fabric design , part of Bert Monroy: The Making of Times Square, The People.
Sometimes a stitch is a part of the design, in which is not just a thread going…through fabric but it is woven into the fabric itself.…In the Times Square, I'm in the center of the painting here, taking a picture of…my wife, right there. That's me.…I am going to go to the actual high-res version where we can see the detail…of the stitching here.…I am going to come in real close and we see that the fabric has a design made…up of these little stitches that you see there.…So I am going to create that kind of a thing for you right now.…
Now let me pull back first and we'll see that there are various paths for all…those different lines that we see throughout here.…Let's get a little closer here.…And in our Layers, we just turn on the background here and just see that by itself.…And we'll look at the Paths.…There is the path for the shirt.…There is pants down below.…Here is the lines on the collar, which you see right up there.…Here is the lines on the yolk of the shirt right there.…And here's the lines on the back.…
In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
